Generally, they would not fit into the legal definition of URM.  However, you can make a case for diversity amd minority status in your personal statement.

Everyman:
Hate to jump in like this, but...

Since my last name is Arabic, if I wrote my PS about something to do with justice/Middle-Easterners in the US post 9/11, they'd connect the dots and take care of me??

Will that type of subtlety work?

Maybe [but you have to have good #s...especially high LSAT scores if you are aiming for the top].
